A beautifully written food memoir with a queer bent in which the author comes to terms with her Ukrainian heritage and her lesbian identity by way of their connections with food: as sustenance, coping mechanisms, reminders of familial history and objects of desire. The book's most compelling material includes the story of her father, who spent time in a concentration camp during WWII as a Ukrainian prisoner of war and later reinvented himself as a North American professor and family man who oversaw dinner parties and family meals with rigour and ritual.
